An album from an artist I been following for the last year or 2, Willie the Kid, repping Atlanta, has hit the streets and it’s straight FIRE. The albums called ‘Absolute Greatness’. Brought into the game by DJ Drama and regularly seen with fellow Aphiliate, LA the Darkman, who ‘s also from Atlanta, but sounds like a Brooklyn emcee who’s been grindin for years. Peep their collab with Twista and Devin the Dude and Denaun Porter on a CLASSIC track called ‘Beneath The Diamonds’ and their equal classic track with one of greatest synth based beats entitled ‘Makin Money Smokin Weed’. The best way to describe Willie is a more street version of Lupe but with that similar classic combo of lyrics, flow and swagger… mad swagger! I could try to give a proper review but instead I’m gonna give you the tracks I thought stood out instead:
- Coogi Down (with a gully Biggie sample)
- The W
- Let Em Know [Feat. Lonnie Mack & LA The Darkman]
- Love for Money
Check the video below, a lead single of the album; entitled ‘Love for Money’ with Trey Songz providing a great hook. Not too keen on Gucci Mane’s verse but generally quite a banger, with a heavy hitting bass.
